FreeBSD & WinNT + WIN95- Bootmanager doesn't recognise FreeBSD-HD

Post by Erlend R?sj » Tue, 26 May 1998 04:00:00



I have installed FreeBSD on another HD than C:, and the "easyboot"
bootman. that comes with FreeBSD doesn't recognise the bootable FreeBSD
HD. I have installed the bootmanager on C:, and on the other HD. What do
I do to just boot FreeBSD!? Pleeeze help! :)

Due to the way booteasy works, if you have 3 drives in your
system it will only see 1 drive. If you have 4 it will see 2,
5 it will see only 1 again...

Try using the boot program (freebsd.exe or something like that)
from DOS/Windows. Or another boot manager.

Cheers.

just try booting from hd(1,a)/kernel ... ( hope I'm right... )
when your bootrecord asks you ...

1. FreeBSD & NT & BootManager problems

My friend is trying to install FreeBSD with WinNT on the same machine.
He has created 2 partitions, the first for FreeBSD 800mb, the second for
NT several gigs.

He has sucessfully installed FreeBSD, and NT, but whenever he installs
one it rewrites the BootManager and gets rid of the other systems prefs.

What should he do?  please reply by email, thank you.
